Flashback Friday – Grounded Happily

This post was originally published on October 29,2020. I am sharing it again for Fandango’s Flashback Friday. I remember this day very well. It was a good day and clarified my standing with myself. I lost it again somewhere between then and now, but I am slowly coming back up.


It’s funny how time changes when you are alone.

Sometimes it flows slower because you are not racing to make anyone else happy anymore.

You can take a moment to breathe in a deep breath, and that breath revives your inner-self and soul.

It feels so good that even your bones feel free of release from pain, stress, worry, and anxiety.

You feel loose rather than the tightness of glue on your skin.

Alone feels like freedom when you allow yourself to feel truly in your own skin and space that belongs only to you.

You feel grounded.

Your soul regroups.

Then you’re able to feel surrounded by yourself and feel like you’re not alone anymore.

My Light in the Dark

This first word of the day post comes from Daily Spur by Nox, and the word is speaker. This is the first one I am doing for this page, since I have just run across the blog, but I thought of a pretty cool theme around it. Music is my soul, and it gets me through a lot. With that said, here is my post about a speaker.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whether by phone, hub, tv, or computer

The tones in the music disconnect me from my pain

In the darkness, where no light has been all day

The speaker becomes my light in the dark

I listen and sing, feel my soul connect

Attachment not sudden or immediate

But the flow of my soul glows

My heartbeat slows to a normal pattern

I breathe a little lighter

I huff a little less

One by one the songs play

I become free

For that instance…I feel only me.

In that moment, my light shines

In my red-stained eyes

And my tears dissipate from my cheeks

The speaker saves my life…
